While the application of the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method for the modeling of welding processes has become increasingly popular in recent years, little is yet known about the quantitative predictive capability of this method. We propose a novel SPH model for the simulation of the tungsten inert gas (TIG) spot welding process and conduct a thorough comparison between our SPH implementation and two finite element method (FEM)-based models. In order to be able to quantitatively… 



Application and Benchmark of SPH for Modeling the Impact in Thermal Spraying

A 3D Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) model is presented, which represents the molten droplet as an incompressible fluid, while a semi-implicit Enthalpy-Porosity method is applied for the mushy zone during solidification.

Numerical simulation of weld pool dynamics using a SPH approach

In this paper, we present a numerical model for the calculation of weld pool dynamics and the resulting weld seam structure with regard to the arc forces. The model uses an incompressible smoothed

Sensitivity to welding positions and parameters in GTA welding with a 3D multiphysics numerical model

ABSTRACT A three-dimensional numerical model of Gas Tungsten Arc welding has been developed to predict weld a bead shape, fluid flow in the weld pool, as well as thermal field in the workpiece. This

SPH simulation of gas arc welding process

The thermofluid behavior of a weld pool during a TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding process is simulated by SPH (smoothed particle hydrodynamics) method, taking into account the phase change of the

A Thermo-Hydraulic Numerical Model for High Energy Welding Processes

A numerical model especially devoted to the thermal simulation of high energy welding processes is proposed in this paper. It suggests one possible way to overcome the difficulty to simultaneously

Numerical simulation of the plasma–MIG process—interactions of the arcs, droplet detachment and weld pool formation

The plasma–metal inert gas (MIG) process is characterized by a variety of process parameters. Numerical simulation can be used to investigate the influence of these process parameters and thus helps

An axi-symmetric thermo-hydraulic model to better understand spot laser welding

The aim of this study is to better understand the basic mechanisms leading to possible defect occurrence in spot laser welding. For that purpose we have developed a numerical model, which takes into
